Native American Resurgence and Renewal
A Reader and Bibliography
Robert N. Wells Jr.
The struggle toward Native American self determination has been a long and difficult one. Beginning with the Washinton State fish-ins and the Red Power movement of the 1960's, Native Americans have become more proactive regarding their treaty rights and tribal sovereignty. Over the past twenty years, Native Americans have embarked upon educational reform, cultural revitalization, economic development, and protection of their resources. A new generation of Indian leadership has emerged to respond to the challenges facing Native communities and their survival. This book examines this Native American political and cultural resurgence and contemporary Native American-Anglo relations in the United States and Canada.
Each chapter in the volume has been written by a scholarly authority in the field. Contributors include: Thomas McGuire, Gary Anders, Curtis Berkey, Gregory Campbell, Teresa LaFramboise, Ward Churchill, Vicki Page, C. Matthew Snipp, Gary Sokolow, Michael Moore, and Ralph W. Johnson. A brief overview of each of the areas of native policy proceeds each chapter. With a comprehensive bibliography of Native American literature, a glossary of Native American terms, and an index, the book will be valuable in library reference collections and in courses on Native Americans, race and culture, and public policy.
